need some advice on putting my goldfish into a pond.
« on: December 26, 2009, 12:57:14 PM »

hello, ive had my two goldfish for 8months in a tank. one is a comet goldfish and the other is a shubnukin (sorry not sure how its spelt? Huh
well, when i bought them they were quite small and the tank i bought for them was ideal.
but now they have gone huge!! Shocked
my auntie has a pond with some goldfish already in it.
would it be ok to put my two into the pond with the other fish in there?
i worry perhaps the change from being in the tank they going into a cold pond will harm them?
or worse still ,do you think my aunties fish in the pond will eat or fight with my two? any advice is much appreciated. thank you

Your concern about your auntie's fish eating your two goldfish are very legit.  For most goldfish , whatever will fit in their mouth they will consume, including other goldfishes.  Depending on where you live, if the temperature of the pond water (not just outside air temperature) is 50' F or below, dropping your goldfish from a warm environment into such cold water will be too much of a shock to their system.  They can survive in cold water, but only if the temperature decreases very slowly and they are allowed time to adjust.  Maybe you can hold on to them for a few more months until warmer weather arrives ( if you live in the usa), which should give you more time to decide whether or not the goldfish will be able to survive in your auntie's pond.
